We arrived at the Casa Kiwi Hostal Its located with 5 blocks from Parque Lleras. It is where all the bars,chic clubs, shops and restaurants are located at. We checked in a room with 2 bunk beds for 4 people. The place is very clean but the beds were very uncomfortable. We are staying for 2 nights, so I can deal with it. I tried to take a nap but I kept rolling around. After a brief power nap, I woke up and took a shower and head down stairs to the meet people.
It was about 8pm, we all went to this chic Hookah Bar and a Thai-Colombian Fusion restaurant in Parque Lleras. I had too many shots of Aguradiente. I don't remember half of the night. My friend AJ got drunk and blacked out! I guess we were not able to handle ourselves in public, My friends had to took us back to the Kiwi. Yune, Sam and our new friend Diggler went back out to the bars. I stayed up, played pool and socialize with other travelers and AJ past out on the bedroom floor in his puke. too much information eh? LOL
The next day we went to Paragliding. We drove all the way to top of Medellin and hike up a hill to meet up with the Paragliding company. Our instructor was name Ricardo Florez, he speaks fluent English and is a very cool guy. His whole team got us prepared for flight. Paragliding was an awesome and a breathtaking experience! I had a bird eye's view of Medellin. I wish I would have taken my camera with me while on I was on the tandem flight! I will write a review on paragliding soon!
